Basically the same concept as the Holyrood 9a. Lots of cold kegged micros (almost the exact same line-up as it’s sister bar a day or two earlier), good burgers, modern decor. Slightly more spacious though. Lots of other good pubs in the area as well, so good for a few ticks in between the proper boozers.

Me and Loz visited here on Saturday 15th March 2014. This was a wonderful bar, the beer selection was very good featuring mainly Craft Beer Kitchen a local brewery where people can go and brew (tutored by a brewer) a beer of their choice. I had a quite lovely Blackcurrant Berliner Weisse and Loz a South Seas IPA, both great though I preferred mine as it was more refreshing and moreover a beer style that is rapidly becoming one of my favourites. We had share plate of cheese, olives, pickle, bread etc it was a nice selection and well worth the £6.95 we paid. The bar was modern with a raised area to the right another area to the left and the actual bar towards the rear on the left hand side. The staff were exceptionally friendly, really helpful offering tasters etc. We both really, really liked this place it is well worth the slight walk from the centre, we did Bow Bar, Brewdog then here before walking along the park/meadows to Cloisters and The Hanging Bat a very nice walk.

Smart looking bar with a large range of taps and some bottles. The beers stocked are definitely from some of the top British breweries. I didn’t try the food but the service is good and at around normal price level. The only thing I would change is the background music - I wouldn’t have any but maybe I’m just getting old.

New Fuller Thompson pub that couldn’t b e any more different to the pub the previous Southern. The Southern doesn’t stray very far from the successful Holyrood 9A and Red Squirrel template.

Fuller Thompson’s new place on the Southside. Slightly smaller than either of their other two Edinburgh bars, but a nice lively atmosphere. 4 excellent cask ales (opening night included two new beers from Fyne, a cask of Kernel Export Stout...) with 4-5 "craft kegs" and 10 or so mainstream beers. Burgers are fantastic - I had the pork & chorizo one last night, absolutely amazing! A really nice addition to the beer scene in Edinburgh, particularly now that FT are bringing in such excellent stuff.

A new Fuller Thomson bar, so if you know there sister bars in edinburgh (Red Squirell and 9A) a good mix selection of beers, with 4 Cask ales and about 4-5 interesting Keg beers, filled out with more mundane keg beers. Great Burgers, nice atmosphers, another great addition to the Edinburgh Bar scene, just a shame its the wrong end of town
